    Very nice indeed, only problem, here in AZ, not too many chances to wear top coats or heavier SC's. This Thanksgiving, high of 80 degress.

    Thrift pic, this is the Oxxford Shetland wool (so my tailor told me) SC from earlier in the year with the gold buttons. Took the buttons off and sold for $540, bought a Tommy Hilfiger SC for a $1 and took the buttons off and had them put on the Oxxford.


    SC Oxxford Shetland wool for Bullock & Jones, San Francisco (thrifted $7) Buttons, from Tommy Hilifeger
    Shirt, JAB (no monogram)
    Tie, Jack Victor 100% silk made in Italy, darker stripes have a nice thicker texture.
    Pants, Zanella mild double pleats (thrifted)
    Shoes AE Brookwood in chili (retail on sale)


    Gold buttons before

    After, only had the sleeves shortened and the buttons added:

    Before ebay you should check with HansderHund on the tie, it should be right up his alley.

    ^^ Love the suit and the tie (though it doesn't appear to be a grenadine, from what I can see). You may want to experiment with a solid shirt.

    damn more people need to post thrift pics so it is not just eazy hanser and spoo looking awesome and me posting crappy suits for fit advice [​IMG] this is a killer look! I have been really wanting to try a more interesting pocket square but always reach back to my white linen I guess I am not as brave, also I was voted best dressed at youth and government [​IMG]

    also a note about tie widths almost all mine are 3-3.25 inch I think they work best with my thin frame but do you think those are so slim that they will be totally out of style and worthless in a few years? I have a couple of 4 inch bb I was thinking about sending into tie crafters but should I wait?

    Oh man, I was just thinking about what ever happened to those 14k buttons the other day! That's awesome! Did you ever get those elk buttons from your hunter friend? If so, are you willing to proxy?

    That is money! Love the contrasting PS and the tie! [​IMG]

    I really hate it when I try to do a lunch thrift and I see all the tags in the suits and sport coats still hanging out from an earlier thrifter...

    Occasionally is is beneficial to take lunch at 9AM to beat the others. I do it about once a week.
